  • Prototype X Really Is Nearly Ready

    Ta-da! Ok....
    If neither printer nor laptop cark it in the next week, and -
    if nothing dreadful happens, then -

    PX1 should be off to the printers in the next ten days!!!!

    The printers claim it will only take ONE DAY to print covers and bind it.

    So we really are almost there. :D

    That? Oh, that's just my knees knocking. Nevermind it, I'm fine.

    Nervous? Nah. I'm just excited, that's all.

    Are you overly warm?

    No?

    Just me then?

    ...

    Damn! What's a guy gotta do to get a glass of water around here!!?

      Fantastic news! I am so looking forward to reading it, and gazing at all of the stunning artwork and layouts.

      Isn't it exciting?

      It's like watching the birth of one's literary child.

        I take it the essay from a certain Mr. Steve O'S. finally arrived.

        If it's going to take "within the next ten days," I assume your shed-slave / printer's drudge, Mr. Duncan W. Crosier, has escaped and that you're forced to print the copies by yourself.

          Any truth to the rumor that Perdix is operating Mustilid Press from the confines of the Molesey Boat Club? Or was it the Cricket Club?

          Certainly not the Diogenes Club!

            Actually, I don't think I've paid my Boat Club subs this year....too much time on the erg :?

            Yes, the crittur Crosier escaped after detecting the pheromones of a passing actress Parisienne: I've put up notices with a reward.

              If he's indeed running loose, likely interfering with the personal freedoms of the Dorset general populace, perhaps it's time to call the good people at Crosier Control?

                Well, Darren, I hope the last-minute submission from Mr J is the final piece and that you can ship this thing to be bound very soon.

                Unless you want me to try to talk Ballard and Disch and Bayley and Harrison and Aldiss into contributing? :lol:

                    Michael Jackson! Wow!! I wonder if it's about his recent trial... or his money troubles? Or the story of his life from the point of view of a black fedora? Or some wicked cheats for his classic arcade game? Either way, it's a great scoop for us... :)

                      Might it be Mr. Janus, looking both into the past of this dubious enterprise with its even more dubious collection of contributors, and into the future of Duncan's coming worldly success as an artist and general man about town...?

                      Maybe not.

                          Hahaha! I had the exact same gag all lined up and ready to roll... and then I thought, nah it's that Jones fella ain't it? And then the moment kinda passed and I decided not to use it.

                          Still, nice to see that great minds think alike, Dee.

                            You guys need to get out more.

                            Among engineering types, in such cases, I suggest they've spent too many quiet evenings at home with their C compiler.
